Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening

Dentistry has expanded far beyond its original function of only providing dental care. An increasing demand for cosmetic dental techniques is designed to restore and enhance the appearance of one’s teeth. Of all the methods of improving your smile’s aesthetic, teeth whitening is, by far, the most popular.

Why Do Our Teeth Lose Their Shine?

Due to their function in mastication, teeth are covered with a durable substance called enamel. This enamel is naturally white and opaque. As we advance in age, constant erosive factors will cause our enamel to lose its opaqueness, becoming more see-through. As transparency increases, our teeth will expose the dentin underneath. That, coupled with fissures that gather tiny bits of food, gives our teeth that dull, worn-out appearance.

Effectiveness and Durability

Having pearly white teeth is an almost universal desire. Both genders are expected to shun yellow or misshapen teeth. Due to the extremely high demand, a multitude of techniques have appeared, each promising complete effectiveness. “Do-it-yourself” kits allow you to bleach your teeth without having to go to the dentist.

Almost every method works, but only a few can promise long-lasting effect. Home kits are effective, but their benefits usually do not persist.

At the Cosmetic and Dental Implant Center, we offer quality treatment, guaranteed to last. Although no service will have an unlimited effect, occasional visits will ensure a constant state of whiteness.

It should be mentioned that some conditions are beyond repair. Just as we inherit our eye color and height, we also inherit the density of mineral deposits on our teeth. For some people, their tooth enamel thickness will decrease with age and it will become more transparent. Specialists agree that no method of bleaching is effective when the cause is genetic. Otherwise, every single stain can be removed if properly treated.

Should I Whiten or Bleach?

Most clients think that these two terms describe the same process. However, they differ in their approach and results. Marketers have avoided using bleach in their terminology, thinking that it is too negative, resulting in this confusion. A product that promises teeth whitening is able to restore the tooth to its original shade of color. It removes all discoloring factors and does not contain any bleach. It simply cleans the tooth, improving its look.

As its name suggests, a bleaching product contains bleach, usually represented by hydrogen peroxide. It whitens the tooth past its naturally occurring color, giving it an unnatural shade of pearly white.

Benefits of Having Excellent Teeth

Messy teeth are usually associated with a poor sense of hygiene. It ages the owner and completely ruins even the most charismatic of smiles. In the century of speed, first impressions count!
